    The last surviving original member of the Ramones has died.

    Ramones drummer Tommy Ramone dead at 62 | New York Post

    Goodbye Tommy
    Thanks for the music.

    Note: Some sources list Tommy as being 62 or 65 years old. He was either born in 1949 or 1952. I went with a source that said he was 62. He could very well have been 65.

    Besides "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Blitzrieg Bop", I never really heard much of their music on the radio, but they were the stuff of legends, according to fans of that era...

    They saved rock music from the depths of hell in the 1970's when the horrors of disco were taking over. They never had a top 40 hit and never got the credit they deserved. Their music had tremendous energy just as they did during their live performances. They truly were incredible. It truly is a sad day for music even though many people do not recognize it.

    And now they're all gone. Nothing for Riff Randell to do but commit seppuku.
